I can’t remember exactly when BeautyBay released this palette but I do remember that it was sold out for ages before I was actually able to bag it and cart it out. The makeup world as I see it is now distinctly shattered between all-nude ladies and editorial gals and I must admit that I, as always, have still not been able to position myself in one category or the other.
But then again – why should I distort my creative soul to fit it in a box when makeup is one of the most accepted ways for humans to practice art day after day?
I became just a lil’ crazy when BeautyBay released the Everything You Need (EYN) eyeshadow palettes and might have bought almost all of them. When I realized the bigger palettes were made up of a lot of the shades contained in the smaller versions, I returned most of them. Kept the Bright Matte 42 though.

As much as I disliked the shimmer shades from BeautyBay – that my demanding self would have hoped more metallic, I loved the mattes at first swatch.
The Bright Matte 42 palette is a success as much in terms of color display and pigmentation and to this day, I still use this palette very often on photoshoots. It is a dream come true for any watercolor lover person as a simple mixing medium can get the eyeshadows waterproof, allowing you to layer the colors.
Everything is in the Bright Matte 42, from the famous black to the transition shades and the brighter yellows that we’ve all seemed to be craving at some point last year – I am not even going to talk about this year. However, lockdown is soon to finish a little bit everywhere, and hopefully, as life goes back to normal and without any indelicacy on my part, people will want to create on their faces again before going out with friends again.

I am not too sure why you would need another colorful palette if you get the BeautyBay Bright 42. Greed, I would say!
Apart from the darker purples that are always tricky to nail and still perform amazingly considering the price point (£23), the overall quality and possibilities offered by this palette make it a snatch. I cannot wait for the day that a palette catches my heart like this one did, many months ago.
